'Children had a great afternoon'

Print Article

Friends of Carver-Roehl County Park would like to thank the hundreds of children and their families who attended our annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, March 25, at Carver-Roehl County Park.

Over 3,500 candy-filled eggs were "hunted" by eager children ages 0-12 on a beautiful, brisk sunny day in the park. Each child was also given a treat bag filled with age appropriate items, such as stuffed animals, puzzles, coloring sheets, and stickers. In the spirit of community generosity, families brought non-perishable food items to be donated to the Clinton Food Pantry.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the many donors who made this fun-filled event possible. Thank you to Cougar Lanes, Hahn's Ace Hardware, Deb DuCharme American Family Insurance, Chamber and Owens, Texas Roadhouse of Janesville, Bradford 4-H, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural

Resources. Special thanks to Kohl's of Delavan for their help in setting up and cleaning up. In addition, thank you to the Clinton Garden Club and the Clinton Historical Society members for helping stuff eggs and the use of the Cobblestone House as "Easter Egg Headquarters". Addie Roehl was our awesome Easter Bunny this year, and we are grateful for her time and talents.

Finally, thank you to the many anonymous individual donors who gave their time and money to purchase supplies for this year's event. The children had a wonderful afternoon.
